Dear Faculty and Students,

We are excited to announce that the Turnitin, Scheduler and Piazza plugins have been added to! These plugins are geared to making using learn.lassonde much simpler for staff and more engaging for students.

- The TurnitIn Plugin: implements the plagiarism checking, feedback and easy grading features from turnitin, securely through moodle.

- Scheduler Plugin: Enables the creation of large scale appointment bookings for students/groups across many days, times, and intervals.

-Piazza Plugin: Enhances the discussion and sharing of information between Professors, students and staff via a simple forum, has question & answer checks plus more!

These plugins can be accessed via the "+ Add an activity or resource" button within course editing. The Turnitin and Scheduler modules can simply be selected from the list. The Piazza Module can be accessed by going to External Tool in the list, naming the tool and then selecting Piazza from the dropdown list under Pre-configured tool.

Please stay tuned for future updates, and reach out if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you and regards,
